Synonymous with quality ignition products, Lumention's reputation was not earned overnight. It is the result of innovation and commitment to excellence over the past thirty years.
The Lumenition story begins in 1968 when Autocar's then managing director E.H. Ford designed an infrared 'Optronic' trigger to form the basis of a revolutionary electronic ignition system. Thirty years on, this trigger system, unaffected by dirt or distributor shaft wear, is still regarded as the most reliable and accurate available.
Adopted as original equipment by specialist performance car manufacturers, fitted to fleet vehicles and made under license in the U.S. by industry giant TRW, the range went on to include a special commission from the Ministry of Defence: an ignition system for Scorpion tanks. Lumenition was the only manufacturer that could meet their need for an ignition system to withstand the electromagnetic pulse of a nuclear strike!
On a happier note, Lumenition began to concentrate on the racing world. As the science of microprocessors progressed, so did Lumenition, taking advantage of the latest advances in technology. Under the management of E.H. Ford's son Michael, (who was there when a Lumenition system created it's the first spark in Autocar's lab), new products have been introduced. The new products include the laptop controlled Engine Management Systems and accessories such as Lumenition's own throttle bodies, suspension products, meters, specialist silicone HT leads and more.
